Please help me Doc... I have undergone anti HAV IgG result is 15.370 reactive, anti HAV IgM result is 0.40 non-reactive, HVsag with titer 0.47 non.reactive. please help me to understand the result... thank u in advance Doc.

Response from Dr. Young


This constellation of tests indicate either prior infection with or vaccination to hepatitis A. IgG is the subtype of antibody that the immune system makes after exposure to a virus, it tends to persist for life. The negative IgM indicates that the infection or vaccination event did not happen recently.

Hope that helps, BY
